New Chambers - 5 Wentworth Chambers, Sydney

I am delighted to be joining 5 Wentworth Chambers, Sydney as my principal chambers, from mid-October 2017. I was previously a member between 1998 and 2005. I will continue to maintain chambers in Melbourne (Douglas Menzies Chambers) and Adelaide (Jeffcott Chambers) for interstate work.

5 Wentworth is a leading set of barristers chambers.  It was founded by Sir Garfield Barwick QC (later Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia) in 1932, and is the longest established chambers in Sydney.


5 Wentworth has particular strength in banking and finance, commercial, corporations, defamation, employment, intellectual property, media, public and securities law.  The chambers comprises 8 senior counsel, and 22 junior counsel.
